Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies

I would honestly rather eat an oatmeal cookie than a chocolate chip cookie. Wouldn’t turn down a chocolate chip cookie though. Here is my Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cookie recipe that I find to be absolutely delicious!


¾ Cup Softened Butter

1 Cup Packed Brown Sugar

½ Cup Sugar

1 Teaspoon Baking Powder

¼ Teaspoon Baking Soda

¼ Teaspoon Salt

½ Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

¼ Teaspoon Ground Cloves

2 Eggs

1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract

1 ½ Cups Unbleached Flour

2 Cups Rolled Oats

Preheat the oven to 375° F. In a large mixing bowl beat the butter with an electric mixer on medium for 30 seconds. Add the brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Mix until combined. Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract. Beat in the flour and then stir in the rolled oats. Drop the dough by rounded teaspoons two inches apart on to a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until the cookies have light brown edges. Remove from the oven and cool on the cookie sheet for one minute. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool. Makes 45 cookies
